government workers were given of taxpayer money to your taxes to allow green energy company to great prosperity. that path is a disaster. balancing the government books is not what matters most. government is not the and all and be all. the health of america is not about government at all. balancing the books as a nice goal but that is not our primary objective. our objective is to grow the private sector. need to focus our efforts and ideas to grow the american economy, not the government economy. i will talk about a couple of other points but if you take nothing else away from what i say, understand this -- we must not become the party of austerity. we must not be the party of austerity. we must be the party of growth. we know the government is out of control and the public knows that, too, yet we just lost an election. we cannot afford to fight on our terms. the republican party must become the party of growth, the party for a prosperous future based on economic growth, an opportunity based on every community in this great nation and not based in washington, d.c. we have fall into

that in our tax code. our tax code is so complicated because there are so many giveaways to the special interest groups or the well-connected that don't privilege americans that work hard and try to put food on the table. >> i have often wondered and explored this if people have an appetite for limited government? americans in general, the government keeps getting bigger. we struggle to obtain the a slower right of growth, which is a great vibtry in a way it is. have you found an appetite for limited government? or limited government for others and not for themselves? >> i believe so. i said often times in the campaign trail that the constitution is very popular and big government is not popular. that is where we should anchor our program and policies. you saw this in the president's speech on monday even though it was a very liberal speech. he didn't call for big government. >> the inaugural address? >> yeah, the inaugural address. that's because he knows what bill clinton knew in 1996, that big government is over. so i do think -- >> the era is over. >> yeah. again, if political leade

not think we can continue to tax the american economy. it is about prioritizing spending. i am a fiscal conservative it. we have to get our spending under control. will you utilize your position to encourage the president to work with us and good faith to solve the debt and deficit issue? >> i spent six months or five months as a member of the super committee. i put an enormous amount of energy and help that we would be able to get the big bargain, granted deal. i am not here to go through all the details what we did not. there was a very hard line, not negotiating position that prevented us from being able to come to an agreement which, incidentally, she we just came to. we can do it with far less on the table and far less accomplished that we would have if we can to the agreement six months ago or one year ago. my hope is, yes, i will weigh in on that to a degree that it has an impact on my ability to do my job and the ability of the state department to do its job. we cannot reduce the funding for some of these initiatives that we are engaged in without great cost to our ability to be

with a biased media and to concentrate all power on the central government in washington with the tax and spend liberals. everyone of those phrases is contemporary. it is and attitude for more than a judgment that shuts us off from accurate history and from their promise of democracy. i am hoping this issue focusing on race and people's resistance to discuss race, to insist that race is salt and it is unsolvable -- is solved. they're both mean we do not need to discuss it. this issue discusses it. when we do discuss it, when we learn things, that is when good things happen. that is the doorway to the promise of freedom. america is still not there yet. i hope we can take advantage of this time. we're marching through these 50- year anniversaries. bring our history back into balance and address the problems of the future with intelligence and with patriotism. thank you. [applause] >> good morning. >> good morning. >> i'm so happy that amtrak or marc got itself together. it was wonderful to hear the comments that have been made so far. greeting is on behalf of the kellogg foundation. i am gail chr
